    Alma praises CPI quality as it wins major publishing award

    Alma Books has praised the quality of CPI printing, after winning Independent Publisher of the Year at the Bookseller Industry Awards earlier this week.

    Alma Books Bookseller Award
    In a newsletter to Alma subscribers following their win, the publisher’s founders Elisabetta Minervini and Alessandro Gallenzi thanked CPI, “for printing all our books to such a high standard of quality”.
    Alma’s success at the Bookseller Industry Awards comes as the publisher announced in today’s Bookseller that it would be the first publisher in the UK to use CPI’s new 3D varnish effect on its covers. Launching a new series of low-priced classics, Alma managing director Alessandro Gallenzi said that CPI’s innovative 3D digital varnish would, “add to the quality and perceived value of the books”.
    The first titles in the Evergreens range will be Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert, The Prince by Machiavelli and Praise of Folly by Erasmus, publishing in September. Each will be priced at £4.99 in a response to the price sensitivity of the classics market. Alma Books intends to publish ten Evergreens each year and will add value by including extra introductions, photos and biographical information.
